altCyril Molina - Kellook – Promotional photo album and interactive mirror

In Saint-Auban


Cyril Molina, originally from Montfort, contacted the MDE in 2009 when his project was still only at the ideas stage... One thing was certain – he wanted to set up at the Moyenne-Durance crossroads!
MDE04 put his company in touch with the CCIT to work out its business plan and to apply for specific start-up help (Arkema Agreement, API Platform, Oséo, etc.).
Then MDE04 presented several offers of premises. It was a building belonging to the Château-Arnoux Saint-Auban local authority which attracted Cyril Molina’s attention. And that’s where Kellook is now!
